Kokuryu Daiginjo Ryu

After the founder returned from France, he applied wine aging to sake and released it in 1975. At the time, it was the most expensive sake in Japan, which was a turning point for the brewery. It was also the first in the industry to use the now-common expression "Daiginjo”. At that time, a label with a dragon stamped in gold foil was used on the sake bag used to press the sake. THis Daiginjo is fruity and soft with the notes of apple, peach, melon and strawberry. Fermented at low temperature, it is mellow with pleasant acidity and umami. Mildly dry and crisp, it is easy-drinking and delicious. REMARKS: The sake has been pasteurized, so it can be delivered at room temperature. However, cold temperature is suggested for long-term storage. Recommended way to drink: 5°C to 10°C Tasting Notes: Well-rounded, gently aromatic and surprisingly incisive. Grade: Daiginjo Rice: Yamada Nishiki Rice Polishing Ratio: 40% rice polishing Nihonshu-do (SMV): +4
